Converting to VM with Endpoint

Veeam Logoby Cragdoo » Wed Nov 04, 2015 10:36 am

Lazy admin here , but has anyone documented a process or written a blog article about using Endpoint to convert a physical server/desktop/laptop into a VM running on Workstation or the like ?

Care to share?

Thanks Alexey ...but this requires the Endpoint backup files to reside on a VBR repository 1st. Any way to do it directly from Endpoint ?

Craig,

You can install VBR free on the same machine (yes, supported...) and use that to do the conversion to a VMDK / VHD(X). Double click on the VBK or VIB file that you want to convert and the machine will ask you whether you want to "open" it with VEB or VBR Free.

Cheers

thanks Mike , will have a look into that . Still would be nice to have this option within Endpoint without having to install an additional package :P

I think you understand that it isn't that easy right ;-)
